Han is such a hottie!
Your NES doesn’t like you cheating on it with Sega, and it made a song to let you know. This parody of Cee-lo’s song “F*ck you” was made by Inverse Phase, check out the rest of his Chip Tunes on his website.
“So what’s going on here? Well, the year is 1990. You’ve finally gotten a Genesis (or a Mega Drive, I suppose) from the toy store and your Nintendo has begun to collect a fair bit of dust. If it could talk (or sing) to you, what would it be saying right now?”

“Knife Show’s snowboarding videos have always been amazing, but the vid posted last night surpasses all their past efforts. Directed by X-Play‘s own Mike Benson, “Gnarcade” mashes video game memes with snowboarding and skateboarding to create something guaranteed to drop your jaw.
Scott Stevens, Micah Hollinger, Chris Beresford, Tim Eddy, Ben Bogart and Casey Wrightsman provide the action and Ground Up provides the game-inspired soundtrack.”
rap (video games + 8bit) + (snowboarding + skateboarding) =
Ever catch yourself daydreaming about your favorite band/artist singing about the things you really like such as like sci-fi, literature, comics, etc.? Well dreams do come true!
And guess what?! It’s totally free the legal way!
I met them a few times and they are just as cool in real life as they appear to be in their songs (yes I just name dropped but I don’t have many names to drop so whenever the opportunity presents itself I take advantage and am not the least bit ashamed).

Okay okay so I’m pretty sure Gaga isn’t a geek but someone in the Haus of Gaga definitely is!
I’ve been a fan of Gaga and all her extraness for some time now. It was brought to my attention by my brother that in Gaga’s latest video “Telephone” feat. Beyonce that there are some very cool traces of geek lingo. Of course my brother being who he is immediately noticed it and said, “Hey that’s from a video game! That’s awesome!” Yes it is little bro… yes it is.
The geekery makes its nothing-short-of-amazing appearance when Gaga is in the kitchen mixin’ up a deadly “Cook ‘n’ Kill” concoction to murder everyone at the diner for whatever reason, but hey at least she wishes them good luck!
Pick your poison:
Rat Poison– just plain ol’ rat poison
Fex-M3– a nerve toxin from the Star Wars extended universe.
Meta-cyanide- made famous by David Lynch’s Sci-fi novel Dune
Tiberium– from Command and Conquer RTS (real-time strategy) game series games is lethal to game characters, making it a good choice for poison.
Here’s a (totally unnecessary and gross) pic of a tiberium infected human.
Not done yet!
If that wasn’t enough whoever made the video threw in an anime reference which you wouldn’t have noticed unless you can read Japanese. I can’t read Japanese but I do have google!
In the scene where Tyrese “whyisheinthisvideo?” Gibson slaps the Asian woman’s ass she says “One Piece” (subtitled in Japanese) which is a popular Japanese anime. Apparently calling someone an anime TV show is the equivalent of cursing them out.
Why did Lady Gaga’s team decide to do this? Do we really know what the “Telephone” video is about (if it is about anything at all)? Who the hell ever knows why Gaga does what she does, but I hope she continues these subtle geek shoutouts in the future!
